Using the Semantic Web for my QA work

Filed under:

My work at W3C is supposedly split into two different activities: as a member of the SysTeam, I’m setting up and implementing projects to ease the operations of W3C work; as a member of the QA Team, I’m trying to work on making W3C end products – mainly, its specifications- “better”, part of the job being to define what “better” means.

Where does my work in Semantic Web projects fit, then?

New documents from the QA Working Group

Filed under:

Thanks to the huge efforts from Karl, Lynne and Lofton, the Quality Assurance Working Group was able to release a set of new versions of its documents, including a “brand-new” document, Variability in Specifications.

Most of the work has been focused on the Specifications Guidelines, which have gone through a thorough re-design since February, and, much in the spirit of the WebArch document, tries to be both useful and easy to read to convey some of the most important principles to follow when designing a specification to become a standard. The document isn’t fully ready yet, but I expect the on-going work on it will let us publish a Last Call document in October.
